The accompanying 'widget' is being tested for reliability, accuracy and fairness. If it passes muster, I'll try to move it to one of the panels on my home page (if it fits).

Our energy choices are becoming more critical. My view is that to exclude one form over another in the short term is likely to increase energy prices and thus significantly affect world-wide living costs. While the industrialized world may be able to absorb those costs, the third world can not. One only needs to look at the unintended consequences of Ethanol (40% of US corn production is mandated to be refined into that fuel additive).

Keeping our eye on increasing the widespread use of renewable energy is a worthy and moral cause, but a single leap forward is not possible. Yes, push forward on alternatives but let's not 'cut off our nose to spite our face.' Fossil fuels still fuel our civilization.
